Every year at this time of year I get excited about attending the Illinois Computing Educators Conference, #ICE15, in Chicagoland! I love the energy and excitement that forward thinking educators bring to this event. I will be bringing plenty of ThingLink bling to share at the social events, as well as hosting some sessions. Here is what I have planned while I'm there.
If you are an educator who uses the STEM or STEAM model to provide students with project based learning experiences, you might want to try using ThingLink to power your projects. Not only will you discover the endless possibilities that exist for using this flexible tool, if you submit your project to one of the ThingLink Creative Challenges you can win a prize!
Currently there are four education related challenges to choose from, each focusing on STEAM and the related disciplines. All of the challenges are available on the Creative Challenges site.
Many teachers are creating amazing interactive images packed with resources for teaching science. Many students are using ThingLink to demonstrate learning about science by annotating images with multimedia. Good news! We are crowdsourcing to collect resources to and share great interactive images for teaching and learning about science. We hope you will join us.
Join us in creating and curating the best science images, aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Create a ThingLink to support learning in the fields of life science, physical science, or earth and space science then submit it using our new Creative Challenges tool. The challenge is open for 30 days and we will feature the best images during a webinar on February 17, 2015 to celebrate.
We have been very busy at ThingLink over the course of the past year and we are pleased to see our community of educators growing considerably. We now offer district level verified organization accounts, a designated classroom workspace for teachers and their students and ThingLink for Video! We have remodeled and improved our teacher management features and we’ve updated our amazing iOS app to be even better for educational use. We thought you might appreciate some resources to help you embrace our full-featured education platform.

We are pleased to announce the winners of our first 3 Science Creative Challenges. With many amazing images to choose from, it was very difficult to choose one winner from each category. The tie-breaking factor in each case came down to the level of student engagement. The winners of each of these challenges will be awarded 3 Premium EDU accounts to give to teachers at their school. Congratulations to Laura Moore, Christi Collins and Patricia Merlino! Many thanks to everyone who submitted an image.
In February we promised to launch our next Creative Challenge focusing on Technology and Engineering. This is part of a bigger effort to curate content related to the disciplines involved in STEAM and also to demonstrate amazing ways to use ThingLink by sharing the work of our education community members.
STEAM is an approach to teaching that supports arts integration across the curriculum. In a STEAM classroom students construct and demonstrate understanding about core subject areas through an art form. Teachers design learning experiences that encourage students to engage in a creative process that connects an art form to one or more core subject areas, such as Science, Engineering, Technology or Math to meet objectives in all areas.

Over the course of the next few months ThingLink will be collecting, curating and encouraging our community to create science content to support Next Generation Science and STEAM. Many ThingLink users are creating wonderful content in the various categories of STEAM and we want to make it easier to discover and use content. We also want to engage our community to contribute to the continuously growing database of interactive images.
